In the mind of late-term abortionist Dr. Willie Parker, the story of the Good Samaritan ends with the Samaritan tearing a live baby from the womb of a woman. I don’t particularly remember that part of the Bible but maybe I have an old version.
Dr. Parker actually said that his faith has driven him to abort babies up to 24 weeks. I’m sure it has nothing to do with the mad cash some people are willing to pay to rid themselves of the responsibility of a baby.
Think Progress reports:
For the first 12 years of his medical practice, Dr. Willie Parker didn’t perform abortions. A Christian from Alabama, he didn’t feel comfortable participating in the procedure. But then he changed his mind — and he credits that reversal to his faith.
“In listening to a sermon by Dr. Martin Luther King, I came to a deeper understanding of my spirituality, which places a higher value on compassion,” Parker recounted in an interview with the New Jersey Star-Ledger. “King said what made the good Samaritan ‘good’ is that instead of focusing on would happen to him by stopping to help the traveler, he was more concerned about what would happen to the traveler if he didn’t stop to help. I became more concerned about what would happen to these women if I, as an obstetrician, did not help them.”
Now, Parker is one of the doctors who flies in from out of state to provide care for patients at Mississippi’s last abortion clinic. He’s also one of the dwindling number of medical professionals who perform abortions up to 24 weeks of pregnancy — a practice that Republicans are attempting to outlaw by passing 20-week abortion bans, which are already in place in several states.
I personally don’t remember the Good Samaritan accepting cash or credit, do you?
